    Does anyone know why his contract wasn't renewed?? I don't see how you can be one of the stars 1 year, and be gone the next. The worst part is how they explained his departure in one single line in the premiere.

    Ryan Murphy said that they offered Chord a partial contract "For reasons that (Chord) understands," but Chord turned it down. That was probably the worst professional decision that anyone has made in years. I don't care if they only offered him 3 episodes for season three. If you want to be a singer, being on a show that pumps out 3-6 per week is the best place for you. If you want to be an actor, being on a super popular tv show, and getting your face out there to millions of people per week is the best thing for you. You just don't pass up on an opportunity like Glee. I'm not sure why he turned it down, but honestly there is really no way to explain such a terrible professional decision.

    Maybe he didn't like how they kept on making fun of his mouth...

    ^^LOL. Yeah, that's gotta suck.

    I'm actually glad he's gone. Chord was very talented, but I never liked Sam beyond the season premiere. That character never worked for me.

    I bet he didn't mind them making fun of his mouth when he went to the bank to cash his "Glee Check". Or when he was adored by millions, or on talk shows. If anyone has a reason to be offended about the way they were exploited on the show; it would be the heavy set girl who was Pucks love interest last season. For God's Sakes!! How many fat jokes could thet fit in per episode??

    I guess Chord was on the Middle last Wednesday. I have it recorded on my DVR, but I haven't watched it yet. I wonder how he'll be? Have any of you seen it?
